Bio and Links
Bio Photo I recently read on another bio, "our ancestors can't tell us where they are buried, we have to find them." So true. I'm so thankful to all the volunteers that have registered the graves in their areas. My personal goal is to help register graves in my area that will hopefully help others locate the final resting places of their loved ones.

Please remember that while FindAGrave is a great tool to use in genealogy research, the clear mission of FindAGrave is to register the graves. If you are new to FindAGrave, please click on the "Help with FindAGrave" menu selection and read the FAQ before starting.

Yellow daffodils I've placed on a memorial usually signifies a connection to me in some way.

I'm happy to transfer memorials within the FindAGrave guidelines found in the FAQ (and I'm somewhat flexible on that). To request a transfer, click the "Edit" tab on the top right of the memorial and then "Suggest a Correction" tab to send me a note requesting the transfer, indicate HOW you are related, and don't forget to provide your Member ID. I'll consider all requests, but you might want to consider building a Virtual Cemetery (see FAQ).

I'm also more than happy to provide links where the final disposition is known or add additional information. Again, click the "Edit" tab and "suggest a correction" to send this information.

A word about photos I've placed on memorials. I'll gladly give you permission to use my photos if you ask me, indicate that I have granted you permission, and provide a link to their FindAGrave memorial. I have found several of my photos posted in family trees on the web without my permission and without a source to FindAGrave. This is a copyright violation and poor research sourcing. Again, please just do the right thing and ask if you'd like to use anything I have posted on any of the FindAGrave memorials.

To all the volunteers that walk through long forgotten, overgrown, tick and snake infested cemeteries, taking photos of all gravestones (even broken or half buried ones), and create memorials, thank you. Those gravestones may disappear or become completely unreadable in the future. For your efforts in registering the graves, thank you for all you do.

Happy hunting!

I would like to request your permission to use your photograph of John V. and Mary A. Gauldein in my online family tree. I would most gratefully appreciate it.

William Willard
Hi Sherryl, thank you so much for the message and info regarding Mr Willard. I have added the information I was provide by Fohn Funeral Home. Maybe there is no record yet due to his burial w/military honors will be held at a later date in the Fayetteville National Cemetery
Thanks for your great work!

RE: Gerald and Hazel Blomgren
I'm please to have been able to take the photos for you. Claquato is such a beautiful cemetery and my favorite to photograph. If you go to you can see the changing photos on their home page that show many of the different sections. And if you click on Cemetery Grounds and find section G2, that is where Gerald and Hazel are buried. The website gives a good history of the cemetery and I think for relatives that live far away that this is a great way to be able to "visit".
Kindest Regards, Gram

RE: photo Hazel Blomgren
Hi Sherryl,

Timing was just right for me to add Hazel to my photo list for yesterday. I'll go back through my pictures today and add it to Gerald's memorial as well. I often take a close up of both sides, so hopefully I did one of his and can add it too.

Sometimes our ancestors will lead us if we follow the still small voice in our hearts. :-)

They just want us to look for them and find out who they were and where they are. It is in the search we get to know them and along the way love them

RE: Amy R. Gow, Fayetteville National Cemetery
They should not be moving misplaced memorials. You did it right and they did not; if you prefer to get it reversed and keep credit for your work, Find A Grave will merge their misplaced memorial into yours which takes precedence. It can even be done after deletion. Let me know if you want to pursue.

Thanks, Karyn
